Recently I acquired a Holtzher 1243 sliding table saw from an older man down the road for just a few hundred bucks. He was getting too old to make good use of it and needed the space in his shop. I would like to do a full tear down and rebuild to get this thing up to new specs. I have rebuilt lots of other machines over the years but never a slider. I plan to replace the arbor, arbor bearings, rollers in and under the sliding table, the belts, the worm gears, shafts and collars for the blade elevation and tilt. Are there any other common wearable parts that I am omitting? The saw was ran hard for a while and appears to have been poorly maintained. The blade has some wobble upon start up but appears to line out once the motor is up to speed. The sliding table has some play and wear on the rollers so I figured that it’s best to go ahead and replace them while I have the saw torn apart. I will take a lot of pics and post my progress along the way!

My first question is how difficult is it to replace all of the rollers and/or bearings inside the sliding table? Is the sliding table difficult to align or put back together after the rollers are replaced? Any one know of a good source for the rollers?
